i did what he did only better....

added 1/2 inch fence locks to the back half to lock it down...
added 3k lb "D" rings for more anchor points
added water proof lights, just in case... herd the stock ones are junk...
removed the pivot bolts
made pocket hinges for the pivot, made it 10X stronger at the fold seam
removed and sold the stock 1.5 inch axle and weakass leaf springs
added a new 2.50 inch axle and leaf springs from South Texas Trailer Supply
added a 3/4in CDX ply wood deck
Welded all joints to the frame
added a brace to the tongue A-Frame for rigidity...
added a Trackside Wheel Chock

after all said and done, i think i spent $450-$500 for a 4x8 2100lb rated tri fold trailer...holds 2 bikes, tent, canpoy, tools, gas cans, kids toys, kids bicycles, grill, spare wheels, large cooler, and race gear...

will post pics if you want it...LMK...
Also plan on going this route. I just picked up the trailer from HF yesterday with a 25% off coupon for $225 (sale price was $280). Plan to put on some LED lights, weld the joints, add a chock, hooks for strapping points, and rhinoline the plywood. .

I just hate seeing bikes on trailers! It's supposed to be free to Rome, not tied down and dragged behind a car! Dirt bikes I get but not road bikes...

Don't feel like replacing tires once I get to the mountain then replacing again when I get home lol that's a lot of money to throw out

Of course! Didn't think of that. I guess that's a completely different story then.
